A Human Network: How Our Social Connections Determine Who We Are
Matthew O. Jackson didn’t want his new book, “The Human Network: How Your Social Position Determines Your Power, Beliefs and Behaviors,” to be confused with “The Social Network” or Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook. In fact, his work focuses on a much broader idea than social media.
In the book, he argues that all types of human interactions happen in networks — whether they're online or in person. And those human networks affect us in ways large and small.
The Show spoke with Jackson about these networks and how they influence us.
